Project Xpedit : Device for Hiking and Trekking

When you are planning to do an adventure journey or trekking to the wild, it is essential to have a device in your backpack that helps you to understand the environment. For my upcoming adventure journey, i planned to build a device that helps me to monitors temperature, humidity, air pressure, and altitude.

@Suhailjr When you post project details, please try to include a picture and basic technical information will be better for understating.
@salmanfaris I mainly did this project by following two tutorials in youtube its link is mentioned in my channel.Basically it runs with the help of visual studio code and pycharm.Pycharm is used to detect the hand movement and with the helpm of autopy we move the mouse.By serial port cmmunication we can send the x,ycoordinates in to the arduino and move the servo
@athulkrishnakdlr Nice Project, Could you please share more about the technical aspects? What Dev kit are you using and how do you translate coordinates from OpenCV to the servo? Thanks 🙂👍.
This is a gesture controlled laser turret,we can control the movement of laser by hand movement.With the help of OpenCV we move the mouse in computer by hand control
Very much informative!!!!
If you are using raspberry pi as one of your main computers and have separate monitor, keyboard and mouse, then you might be tired of copy and pasting terminal commands and codes while doing projects with raspberry pi, because running chromium-browser and reading tutorial will pi slower and using a sperate keyboard and mouse use our workbench space too.
recently I read a blog Share your keyboard and mouse between computers with Barrier by Gordon Hollingworth which is cool.
In that blog, he mentioned a software called barrier, it's a software that will allow you to use a single keyboard and mouse to control multiple computers by physically turning a dial on the box to switch the machine you're controlling at any given moment. The barrier does this in software, allowing you to tell it which machine to control by moving your mouse to the edge of the screen, or by using a keypress to switch focus to a different system.
Follow these to share your computer keyboard and mouse with the raspberry pi
First, we need setup raspberry pi
Step 1: Download and Install Raspberry Pi OS on SD Card
Step 2: Connect raspberry pi to the wi-fi network
Step 3: Install barrier, for that open your terminal (Ctrl + T) and paste or enter the followingsudo apt install barrier
Then click enter.
Step 4: Setup barrier, Open barrier by typing barrier on the terminal, if you successfully installed the barrier you can see like this.
Select option Client (Use another computer's mouse and keyboard) and Select Auto config option too, also note the Screen name, which we need for the server.
That's all next we need to set up the desktop/laptop computer.
Step 5: Download and Install barrier on desktop or laptop computer (The Server), download link
Step 6: Set up the barrier by selecting Server and position your monitor on barrier software.
To Position, the screen clicks the configure server.
Here, to drag and drop the monitor icon to the desired position you need on the grid.
double click the screen and set the screen name, you can obtain the screen name from the raspberry pi barrier client. (See Step 4)
after setup, it should be like this. Then click OK
in the following screen, click Apply and Just wait few seconds then try to move the mouse to the corner. Yes, It should work.
